Thanks guys. I've run out of time(and patience) for today. I'll try again very soon.

Sorry Gdave. Still trying to get this right....

Hey you two--I know it is tiring and very frustrating...do you think that the 'bad disk' idea is the explanation? I tend to think so--again, I would say 'bad cheap disks' since it happened every time I burned wavs on one type (HP something or nuther; blue disks, 100 for $15 at Frys or some such) but when I burned MP3s to the exact same disks with the same burner, it worked...The disks with wavs would play in my portables and my car, BUT not the home stereo. Then I went out and got new, more expensive disks (Sony and TDK I think), and they both worked fine (ie, wavs and MP3s, same burner, now work in all CD players in the house/car).

While we're on it, do you guys use a 'special burner' cause I hear the term, 'burner,' and yet I just use my computer drive...is that a no-no? Is that part of my problem?

Thanks for helping a techno challenged old timer...

I have been reading about that alot here; is that free software that one can download, and then, the inference being, that you do just use the burner in your computer system--no 'stand alone' burner necessary (I suppose this is what I fear hearing: 'yes idiot, you must buy burner XYZ to burn all your CDs or you just get crappy CDs')?

they have some free one's,not the latest version.you can use your stand alone computer to burn.google nero and see what they have to offer.my burn died when my computer crashed,so i got a samsung external for 60 bucks at best buy came with lightscribe,nero software it's a dvd/cd burner,works great.i have yet to figure out lightscribe.also always use good disc's,i've had problems with cheap one's in the past.

Hey--that sounds like a good idea. I have had lots of burners, just the burner, go bad on a system, and getting some super duper stand alone one isn't that expensive...something to think about if it comes with everything like the one you describe.

Thanks.

Will Tell ... definitely invest in the stand-alone. I did about a month or two ago, and damn if it isn't worth every penny. Oh wait ... my burner drive is talking to me! What, what's that you say? Ahh, send Mr. Tell a copy of this very fine 6/14/69 show that just smokes along. What can i say WT, the drive has spoken. I must obey!

Thanks again, Arbuthnot...hmmm, now I suppose I know what will happen to me when I buy one of these talking stand alones...Oh well, if the forum leads me to the well, I must take a drink.
